Eastwood is one of the few neighborhoods on James Island that is located right on the Charleston Harbor and backs up to the May Forest Convent so it feels very nestled into the island. It is a more established neighborhood with homes built from the 50s all the way through to the 90s. Being only 5 minutes from downtown Charleston and 10 minutes from the beach, it’s location is prime.
Because the homes in Eastwood were built over such an extended period of time, one can find a wide range of home styles. Generally, homes are 1 & 2 story, 3-5 bedrooms, and at least 2 full baths. Pricing ranges from the $300’s – $2 million, with some of the homes being situated right on the Charleston Harbor.
People are drawn to this neighborhood for a number of reasons; location, mature landscaping, high ranking schools, walking trails, and a community park on the harbor. Melton Peter Demetre Park (formerly Sunrise Park) is just minutes away with a fishing pier, kayak dock, two sandy riverfront beaches and some of the best harbor views.

Jesse Slowikowski was born in Baltimore, Maryland and spent the majority of his summers in Ocean City Maryland, where he built an affinity for the beach and surfing lifestyle.
Jesse attended the University of Maryland at College Park where he graduated with a BS in Kinesiology and groomed his “inner fan” as a Terp. After graduation, he joined his family on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where he worked alongside his brother in his father’s insurance, remediation and restoration company. The Outer Banks, while being beautiful and truly special, lacked a few necessities that Jesse wanted in his life.
Drawn to a city with a rich history, warm weather and palmetto trees, Jesse moved to downtown Charleston in 2009. Wanting to incorporate the beach lifestyle, Jesse later moved to Folly Beach in 2010 where he found everything he wanted; a historic city he loves just ten minutes away and a quaint beach town that offers the best surfing in the area. Along with warm weather, the beach and surfing, Jesse loves and enjoys his wife, Gabby and cat Kai, family, friends and traveling as much as possible.
